What they claim: '7
0% more radiance! Bourjois 1st radiance-boosting fruit therapy foundation: a flawless complexion for up to 16hrs! Its exquisite and glide-on formula blends onto the skin for a flawless, yet natural finish. 8 hours moisture. Let skin breathe. High tolerance dermatologically tested.'

What I think:
I've used Bourjois foundations in the past and remember liking them b
ut not repurchasing for whatever reason so a few months back I decided to try them out again and picked up their healthy mix foundation. The first thing I noticed about this product is it smells amazing. I usually hate perfumed products but this isn't overpowering, just refreshing!

The finish to th
is foundation is glowy and dewy yet it doesn't contain hideous glitter particles to achieve this, instead of ending up like a disco ball you'll look fresh faced and glowing yet natural. It offers a medium coverage which is buildable and comes with a handy pump which annoyingly can get slightly messy! It lasts a good 5 hours on my oily skin before a touch up is needed and overall is a really beautiful forumlation, highly recommend!

11 beauty obsessed ladies have an opinion...:

  1. Ooh I really want to try this - it seems like the perfect radiant glow-giving foundation :) xx

  2. i want to try this, ive heard such good things, what do you think about the colour though? not orangey or anything? xx

  3. @Ellie - It really is, I've tried a ridiculous amount of foundations and never come across one like this it just leaves you naturally glowy! x

    @Chloe - The colours are pretty impressive, I used Bourjois before I discovered self tanning aswell and I'm really, really white. Bourjois was one of the few that show up true to their colour, didn't show up orange and don't oxidize during the day - yippeee! x

  4. hi sweetie, do you think they have this in an NC30 kindof colour? haha, i dont usually like foundation but my skin is as boring as paper, might mix it in with a moisturiser to get more dewy-ness! lovely review as ever lisa:)

  5. I use the Bourjois 10 hour sleep effect & I must agree, even thought they are different products. I'm loving Bourjois xx

  6. @Irene - Aww thanks :D! Definately, I found a blog that swatches foundations and she has a swatch of 5 of the colours.. It also comes in two darker shades, 57 & 58 which she didn't have and they're pretty adaptable colours so they'd definately have a shade for you! :)


    @ainsleyx - I've tried the 10 hour sleep foundation too and loved that aswell, all Bourjois products smell amazing aswell! x
